Project 365 week 39

Sunday

getting chilly in the mornings, not going to be long until I need to get my automatic car defroster in action before work.






Monday

We do live in a very scenic place. This is a two minute walk from our house. For all we are rural we are approx 10 mins from the nearest town and supermarket. Down the hill and into the woods, the dog loves it.





Tuesday

Things to do in the town so the dog got a walk round the park and then along the river.




Wednesday

A walk down the woods with dog and hubby. Have to say I have never seen these before but there were loads of the lying under a few different trees. Sweet chestnuts, The look the same on the other side, they open out to two sided 4 pointed stars with the prickly bit in the middle.




Thursday

Caught up with a load of housework then a walk down the woods with the dog and hubby.
Out for another walk in the evening, beautiful sunset with amazing cloud formations.
No enhancement needed.





Friday

Hubby's computer went "bang" last weekend and appears to be knackered. No idea what it may be but having asked a few people thought his power supply. A localish person had one to spare so we went down to see if it would work but it was the wrong fitting on it. So no further forward. It owes us nothing, a friend gave us it about 5 years ago but will cost money to replace if we can't get it sorted.

But anyway despite the frosty start we got a beautiful day for a day out so went for a walk down to Portencross while in the area. This was a place we frequented when the children were young and the rock pools were always alive with crabs, sea anemones, wee prawns and allsorts of other things. They would spend many a happy hour clambering over the rocks moving from pool to pool to see what they could find. Sadly these seem to have long gone and the rock pools for quite a few years have been devoid of life.


Never been inside the castle but for the last few years it now opens certain days of the week and certain months of the year.

While we were there we were talking to a local and she told us about a murder that had happened in one of the cottages. A link here if you are curious.

DD1 did the gymnastics run as we were not back in time.
We also dropped off a geocaching tracker while we were out.



Saturday

Live and learn. Bassetts have brought out  limited edition bags of jelly babies under what was apparently their original name, Peace Babies, renamed at the end of WW1 to celebrate peace at the end of the war. The jelly babies don't look any different it is just the bag.....and yes I did have to open the bag and eat some to ascertain that fact.





Been a very quick week, cant believe it is October on Monday. . How has your week been?

  1. You are so lucky to live where you do. I am surrounded by houses and concrete
    That sunset is beautiful! The colours are so pretty.
    I hope your hubby gets his computer sorted. Last time my fellas computer broke it was the power supply. I did a lot of Googling, bought a new part and got it working again. It was cheaper than buying a whole new computer.
    I did not know that about Jelly babies. How interesting. x

    1. I totally agree about living in a beautiful area, though rural can have drawbacks.

  2. Love the area you live in. When we were in Wales it was so lovely to wake up to fields and nature. Am absolutely loving that sunset picture...simply stunning!

    Hope you get the computer sorted soon!

  3. I spotted the Peace Babies a couple of days ago and I'd forgotten about the back story (I used to work at Cadbury Trebor Bassett so knew all about the jelly babies back then). That sunset reflection is a stunning photo

    1. The ecology of the area must have changed in some way, we sue to spend many a happy hour down there

    1. Yes we are on a par with parts of Wales but totally different to Dubai and South Africa. Sadly living here we often take it for granted until likes of this Summer here it all started to suffer with lack of rain.

  8. I had no idea about Jelly Babies either, never too old to learn something new. Could your automatic car defroster came and do mine too? I'm so envious of your views and that sunset is stunning #365

  9. I'd not heard about Peace Babies before - love that. We have some sweet chestnut trees in our nearby woods - one year I'll go collect some and roast them.

  10. Most beautiful landscape. The dog walk is very scenic too. And that sky is ever so dramatic. Haven't spotted Peace Babies yet, but perhaps I wasn't paying attention, will now try to find them.
